What is Google Scholar Button?
Google Scholar Button is an Edge add-on that equips browsers with a one-click feature to access Google Scholar. It helps in finding full text research papers on the web or university library, transitioning your queries from web search to Scholar, and formatting references in widely used citation styles. This tool provides the best results on-campus, but can also be configured for off-campus access through the settings. It even allows a comprehensive search for the US case law.

This extension adds a browser button for easy access to Google Scholar from any web page. Click the Scholar button to:

  • Find full text on the web or in your university library. Select the title of the paper on the page you're reading, and click the Scholar button to find it.

  • Transfer your query from web search to Scholar. Press the Scholar button to see top three results; click "full screen" in the lower left of the popup to see them all.

  • Format references in widely used citation styles. Press the quote button in the popup to see a formatted reference and copy it into the paper you're writing.

Library links work best when you're on campus. To configure them for off-campus use, visit Google Scholar Settings at (you may need to login with your library password or to set up your browser to use a library proxy; please visit your library's website or ask a local librarian for assistance).

To search the US case law, click the gear icon at the bottom of the popup, and configure your preferred collection in Google Scholar Settings.
